Cassava harvest...

Harvest from my first try with cassava. I got some cuttings from a gardening friend (thanks, Felix!) back in, what, May? Made numerous cuttings from the original piece and shared with friends, then planted what was left in the garden: three small pieces.
From grazing in your garden

(You can see the cassava cutting in the lower left corner, beginning of June.)
If I'd gotten it planted in the garden earlier, I would have had a better harvest. Still, considering the space I gave it and the total lack of water, fertilizer, etc. -- not bad. Certainly no worse than sweet potatoes. And now I have fifteen linear feet of cassava stem to make cutting from.
